Elizabeth Seymour

As a functional and environmental medicine physician, Elizabeth Seymour, MD, enjoys the variety the health care field offers each day. A native of Denton, Dr. Seymour chose Texas Woman’s because of the quality education at an affordable cost, and as a student she appreciated the personal attention provided by TWU faculty. 

“I enjoyed TWU’s class sizes, faculty accessibility and the picturesque Denton campus.”

Dr. Seymour received her BS in biology from Texas Woman’s in 2002. Before graduation, she was accepted into St. Matthew's University School of Medicine where she earned her medical degree. When she completed her residency at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, Dr. Seymour was Oklahoma’s youngest physician at the age of 26. She has since returned to Texas, where she operates two medical practices—Medical Associates of Denton and Environmental Health Center-Dallas.

Within less than a decade of practice, Dr. Seymour was proud to become a fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians. Among her other professional memberships are the Institute of Functional Medicine, the American Medical Association and the Texas Medical Association. Dr. Seymour has also served as the president of the Denton County Medical Society.

Dr. Seymour identifies the COVID-19 pandemic as one of the most influential experiences in her career. She believes that the progress made in expanding telemedicine during the pandemic will positively impact access to healthcare in the future.

It has taught us how resilient we can be to get through such a difficult point in the history of health care.”

Active in her community, Dr. Seymour has been a member of the Denton Rotary Club since 2009. Her other community service efforts include serving as a committee member for Keep Denton Beautiful, a Special Olympics volunteer and an emergency room volunteer for Medical City Denton.

Dr. Seymour enjoys beekeeping in her spare time and harvests honey during the summer.
